    Now isn't that Mr. Lenin to the far right? I am amazed that there are still sculptures of the communist leaders standing in Poland. Despite the unfavorable light the colors of the lush green grass and the red wall are well saturated and pleasing.

    Tradition and modernity all in one scene. The traditional kimonos of these lovely ladies are gorgeous but the ubiquois selfie stick doesn't go well with them. Still this is a good humored scene that brings a smile to my lips.

    Hello Bulent
    I have no idea at how and why I just now stumbled upon this amazing shot but being already here, I can't restrain myself to comment.
    Poor moon looks like it is going to be pierced by the Washington monument like a soap bubble.
    The double exposure technique you used for this is absolutely perfect. I still remember the time when we had to think about every shot we took very carefully. Not being able to see the result on a screen but to have to wait until a roll of film was complete and than send it in for development, only to eagerly await the results back ...., sometimes being disappointed when an entire roll of 24 or 36 exposures where waisted to some silly mistakes in camera settings. Not to speak of the costs of a roll of film then!
    Your meticulous noting of the position of the moon in every frame has paid of well in this fine example indeed, the result is mesmerizing.

    What do you mean by "missing it being in Kazhastan"? Didn't you remember it what country you where, something that would not surprise me, seing your excessive travels to all four corners of the wold.
    This here is a very fine example of the Mongol architecture of the middle ages as we can found also in Samarkand or Thaskent (two places I hope to be able to visit one day). The colors of the tiles are stunning and the skills of the early workers just amazing.

    When writing about the outdoor market, are you actually speaking of the wonderful Mahane Yehuda market? A wonderful place that I enjoyed a lot, so much fresh fruits and vegetables in a pleasant setting. Best ever pomegranate juice I ever had.
    The old house with the children's clothes store looks so quaint especially with the orange addition overhanging the small side street.

    The scaffolding maze looks amazing indeed. Great eye catcher.
    I am sure to climb these stairs must be quite impressive and the view from above over the roofs or Rotterdam must be great.

    Hello Beverly
    So this is in your back garden right? A prove one doesn't have to venture far for a good photo opportunity. The bird with the flying water droplets looks quit content in his bath here.
    I personally have invested in a Tamron 150 to 600mm lens recently especially for bird watching opportunities which are abundant either in my back garden or at the petit commerce alsacienne, a nature reserve that is a paradise for all kind of birds, including the evasive kingfisher.

    Wow, what a beautiful scene this is. The rolling hills with the small village of Castelluccio on top, the incredible sky and the gorgeous flowers in the meadow in the foreground, all together they form a formidable pair for the perfect summer scene. In one word: simply beautiful

    Hello John
    A very fine bridge indeed that must must make Lisa more than proud of her ancestors ( a fine portrait of Lisa in the WS by the way). The warm glow of the sun has bathed the bridge in a wonderful light and the whole scene radiates a beautiful calm and tranquility, would it not be for the sad story of the small tenants evicted from their homes so long ago. A story that repeats itself sadly all over the world even to this day.

    So he didn't soar of to the skies after all, this superhero.
    Great view on the Chicago skyline from this vantage point. I actually know this spot, been there myself. The rough emerald colored waters give the composition a great dynamic while the lonely man is the calm anchor here.

    Hello Abmdsudi
    Panning is a technique that I have tried a few times as well, but never with such a fine result as your bicycle man here. The motion blur really gives the composition a great dynamic and a feel of speed. The red clothing and bicycle bag stand out greatly against the grey background.

    It has been some time since I was in Rome last, but your fine scenery reminds me that it would be well worth a visit again. You have choosen a good foreground with the fountain leading us in to the piazza and to discover the many details of the busy square.

    What a wonderful place for an early morning stroll with only a family of deer to keep you company. The warm glow of the early morning light is truly delightful, the calm waters of the loch soothing and the sky simply beautiful. A very fine place indeed.

    Hello Will
    This quaint little street does look very cosy indeed. The place makes me want to sit down with a good glass of wine here. The desaturation has brought a nice romantic atmosphere to the scene.
    Desaturation is a technique that I use more and more myself to enhance special moods in some pics.

    Nothing special? Now that staircase certainly brings some colors and a summery mood in to the old town here. Like a cascade the paintings of the flowers are flowing easily down the stairs. Great effect indeed.
